Close your eyes and deeply hold your breath your voice cries out in seek of my trust and I just throw myself into your fire despite the fact my secrets might end up as smoke My mind told me "run while you still can you´re better off free, without an anchor on your back" but I fell, I fell right through the glass into your garden and I lay there thinking What if it breaks, what if it takes all of our pride, and leaves no place to hide What if it goes, so we end up as foes who are breaking hearts, like it´s one of the arts Is it worth it all The gasoline is stinging in my eyes as I hear you lighting up your cigarette now on my knees I don´t mean to beg I just wish it would have gone differently With those eyes I should have realized what I was getting myself into but I fell, I fell right through the glass into your garden and I lay there thinking
Nobody told me that the sun would be so bright that the hardest things in life are so easy to deny that the pieces of the puzzle aint always gonna fit Nobody told me to treasure every breath that our vital organs, are the easiest to break that our words of love so often are misunderstood Time, will take us away and nothing´s ever gonna bring us back but our love, might stay for awhile for as long as you will whisper my name it´ll be around Nobody told me that war would be our faith that no matter how hard we try things will stay the same that people will always think that they know what is best  for you and I Nobody told me that we would fall in love that your lovely eyes would be the prettiest I´d seen that our story would be able to tell itself
